Colour 3-D photos of San Francisco after 1906 earthquake

These may well be the first colour photographs of San Francisco, but amazingly they are 3-D as well. They were created by photographer Frederick Eugene Ives. Ives was an inventor, best known for inventing the half-tone printing process, but spent most us his life unsuccessfully trying to develop a commercial colour printing process. Anthony Brooks, a volunteer at the National Museum of American History discovered the images and wrote about them in his blog post.
